:lol:

These won’t stop. Many of them are making a billion+ dollars or very close to it. And many of the recent ones haven’t even been very good imho. Combined, Spidey Far From Home, Avengers Endgame, and Captain Marvel made 5 billion bones. No way are they going to phase out. It’s funny because for the last ten years or so, plenty of people have been saying (here too) that “there are too many superhero movies” and “audiences will grow bored”. Then, of course, there’s the real money they make with the toys and other merchandise.

In perspective, it’s been almost exactly 21 years since Blade was released, 19 years since X-Men part 1, and 17 years since Spider-Man 1. That’s a very long time ago yet they’re making more money than ever.

Another thing is that the last good Spidey film that wasn’t created by the MCU was way back in 2004.

Maguire was the best Spiderman, imo. I never thought they could find an actor more unlikable than Andrew Garfield to play the role but boy did I underestimated Hollywood again.

Every year, there's a new crop of kids going to theaters to see these blockbusters.  Overall, the superhero genre is far from slowing down.

It will be very interesting to see what Disney/Marvel does with X-Men and Fantastic 4.  If they screw them up, just like 20th Century Fox did, oh boy....look out....

Looks like they announced 3 more shows coming to Disney+ :
Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel (the 21st century teenage girl version), and She-Hulk

I can’t imagine Moon Knight getting the ultra violence and lunacy that he needs to be represented accurately. Cool character though.

She-Hulk could go either way. The character’s sense of humor does fit in line with the lighter touch that the MCU has been trying lately. She’s better as a team player though imho so hopefully she’ll mosey on over to the films...and likely/eventually, the Avengers roster.

I totally don’t care about the Ms. Marvel one. They could’ve gone with all sorts of more established, more interesting characters than her but I’m thinking Disney has their agenda.

Because until just recently when Disney bought out Fox, Longshot would’ve been grouped with the X-Men characters. Unusuable until the very recent acquisition. The MCU probably would want to intro the bigger X-Men characters like Wolverine, Magneto, etc. before anyone like Longshot.

That second batch of X-Men movies had a lot of problems and she was one of the biggest issues I had. Just really flat acting that didn’t seem like Mystique at any point.

The best Mystique depiction was in X2 by Stamos.

After the train wreck that was X-Men 3, I quit.  The new cast didn’t interest me one bit.

Fassbender does as great a job as a younger Magneto.

I’d grade all the X-movies like this...

X1: B-
X2: A-
X3: F

First Class: C+ (the Fassbender parts early on are quality)
Days of Future Past: B
Apocalypse: F
Dark Phoenix: (skipped because I thought it’d be total garbage)

Of the main cast, Lawrence was easily the worst in both groups and Jackman or Stewart was possibly the best.

Well, Morbius is supposed to come this summer. However, since it’s a Sony property, the chances of him crossing over into the MCU is extremely low. Virtually zero. At best, you could get Spidey appearing in a Morbius movie due to Spidey being Sony/MCU with an asterisk. But that’s it as far as MCU characters. Venom, however, could certainly appear in Morbius and vice versa since both are totally Sony properties.

Dazzler has a cameo in X-Men Dark Phoenix. Cameo was fine but the movie was crap. Don’t watch it.

Too late, I already did, hehe. Dark Phoenix is a frustrating movie. Starts off like it might have potential and there are some moments here and there I liked, but sadly, yes, falls short of hopes. With Jean's line from the previous film, "At least we can all agree the third one is always the worst," they were taunting us with the promise that they were determined to get it right this time...and then managed to fumble it AGAIN.

One set of Marvel characters I wouldn't mind seeing show up in the films eventually is Alpha Flight. Maybe, given Wolverine's connection to the Hudsons and Alpha Flight in the comics, Marvel Studios was holding off until they had the X-Men rights as well (not to mention the rights to use the word "mutant", since some members of Alpha Flight are, although I guess they could have just referred to Northstar and Aurora as "enhanced" or "gifted" or some other alternative they've used before).

I mentioned Alpha Flight in this section of TRF but heard crickets and saw tumbleweeds. :lol:
In a sense, Alpha Flight was already in the X-series: In X2, Mystique poses as a janitor and hacks into Stryker’s computer and discovers mutant civilian names and projects. “Alpha Flight” can be seen (among a bunch of other geeky comic Easter eggs) if you pause at the right moment.

I think I’m thinking something similar to you in which the team is brought into film through the Wolverine connection. Further, if it were up to me, I’d intro Wolverine into the MCU via a “vs Hulk” movie. In this case, the appearance of at least some Alpha Flight members could at least be cameo’d since they all work for the Canadien government. Of course, this story would take place before Wolverine joins the X-Men. Just thinking aloud.

[edited to add: Apparently, Department H is mentioned directly in an episode of Agents of SHIELD. I didn’t see the episode but there you go, two references that I know of.]
